     he BMW M Coupe had a lot to live up too. Conceived by five clandestine engineers working under the cover of night, they conspired to build a no-holds-barred return to the enthusiast-focused philosophy upon which BMW built its reputation. 


In 1998 this was the car for those who found the M3 too soft, too understated, and the M roadster too fragile. Still beloved by many of M’s senior engineers today, there is no getting away from the fact this particular masterpiece from Munich is no docile house cat, it’s a Panther!


With monster tyres and oversized arches, the styling was far from discreet. The concept was all about fusing the relatively conventional sportscar design of the standard Z3 roadster, with Sumo wrestler levels of aggression and superior torsional strength that only a tin top provides. This was a return to proper old-school sports cars that demanded the driver’s full attention.

February 2001 saw the only major facelift to the Z3 M Coupe with a mere 165 right hand drive examples receiving the more refined and powerful 325 BHP S54 engine. The S54 had earned a fearsome reputation among fans of the E46 M3, providing an impressive power to weight improvement in the lighter Z3 M Coupe. New electronics enabled the engineers at M to introduce Dynamic Stability Control, allowing the facelifted coupe to further manage and exploit the increase in power. 

Grey instrument dials, additional colour options, a larger rear-view mirror, updated badges and chrome trim also helped separate this facelift model from its predecessor.

Now on its third owner, this incredibly low mileage and very rare Black Z3 M Coupe has covered a mere 27,500 miles from new. The car is supported with a document file showing decades of MOT certificates, service invoices and a full-service history from BMW. Having been a beloved member of the family for many years it is time this sleek Black Sapphire example finds a new home.
